It’s October, which in college football means the real season has started. Plenty has happened over the first month of the season to make us all believe we know where the 2012 season is headed, but until now it meant little and we can’t predict the future as much as we think we may be able to. What does mean something, until it doesn’t, is that after the first five weeks of the season, the Florida Gators are a top-10 team. That’s only the case in one of the two major polls, but as fans we’ll take it, even if some of us don’t consider it to count for much. Count me among those. While I’m happy (or content, or pleasantly surprised) with the state of the Florida Gators at the moment, I don’t put too much into that top-10 ranking. September is a trial of sorts during which teams find their way. While 4-0 is exactly where we’d want the Gators to be and 3-0 in the SEC is an added bonus, we all remember what October one year ago gave us. It wasn’t pretty and a month we hope to forget soon...
